Dear Members and Friends of Faith:
I hope you are doing ok. I take great solace in knowing that we continue to isolate in order to make sure that the most vulnerable among us do not contract this terrible virus that has brought so much devastation to so many lives around the world. While very different than the normal kinds of church activities that we are used to, please rest assured that this is indeed a ministry that we are engaged in together. Thank you for doing what you can to slow the transmission of this virus.
I am writing today to forward information to you that has come to us through the city of Brantford to help seniors reduce the social aspect of our isolating. It is called “Aging Without Walls,” and it is a way to participate with others in interesting talks and activities via the telephone. You will find information about this programme below, as well as in the document attached to this email.
Please also pass this information on to others who do not have email, as you are able.
Healthy Aging Without Walls is a FREE interactive telephone-based program that connects older adults with others from the comfort of their own home. You can call in to participate in trivia, health and wellness seminars, or discussion groups. This is a great opportunity to learn something new and make meaningful friendships.
Beginning May 4, 2020, adults aged 50 years and older are encouraged to call in and participate in 30-45 minute programming every weekday Monday to Friday. For a full list of programs please see the attached calendar or head to www.brantford.ca/healthyagingwithoutwallswww.brantford.ca/healthyagingwithoutwalls.
